Windows 7: Restore Point settings weird error and can't save

Restore Point settings weird error and can't save

Hi All, I just tried to create a Restore Point and was notified that Restore Points are turned off. I went into Control Panel and got to System Protection and tried to change the settings for C: and D: to "On." When I clicked "Apply," I got the following message.

Could not apply the settings for the following reasons
The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect (0x8007007B)

I clicked Cancel and dropped back to the next page but now the C: and D: drives were showing "On" for protection despite that former message.

I then tried to change the amount of space for Restore Points and it gave the same message again, but this time did not accept the increase in size.

Any suggestions as to what to do to fix that error message issue? I checked the Drive Label and directory label and both are fine.
